The Town of Battleford proclaimed March 15 as Mental Health Awareness Day this year and administrators are going forward to show their support for an upcoming Mental Health community event taking place the same day.
Council also approved contributing $2,500 as a donation to the cause at its recent meeting.
The event will feature TSN sports broadcaster, who recently went public about his own stuggles with mental health. The discussion, which is free and open to everyone, will accept donations toward the Battlefords chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association.
